Linux 4.1 released

Filed under
Linux

So after a *very* quiet week after the 4.1-rc8 release, the final 4.1
release is now out.

I'm not sure if it was quiet because there really were no problems
(knock wood), or if people decided to be considerate of my vacation,
but whatever the reason, I appreciate it. It's not like the 4.1
release cycle was particularly painful, and let's hope that the extra
week of letting it sit makes for a great release. Which wouldn't be a
bad thing, considering that 4.1 will also be a LTS release.

Five Security Tips for New Linux Admins

Filed under
Linux
Security

It’s generally fairly easy for new Linux administrators to get up and running with the basics of installing, configuring and managing Linux systems at a basic level. Truthfully, though, it takes years to get the in-depth knowledge required in many server environments today. One thing I really recommend learning early on — i.e. from the beginning — is security.

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
